Hello,

Most good tyre and wheel shops can tell you what will fit. You can go much bigger than standard, but will find tyres far more expensive. If you go for a very wide tyre, it will be a handfull in the rain. A standard size is a good all round compromise, go one way and you will lose out elsewhere. IMO

XF's perform really well in all conditions on 14x 225's. They fit on factory rims, and give a great compromise between ride and handling.
